    I'm pretty sure my Sunny is wanting to lay and egg. For the last 2 days she has been staying in her sleeping hut. When I check her, her vulva, sorry don't know the correct terminology, is pulsing. How long do I let her go before getting her some help.

    Thanks so much, I'll do that. She doesn't seem in distress. She is still moving bedding around, almost like she is still getting ready.

    Cloaca is the term or vent that all materials pass through one opening. Provide her with extra calcium like cuttlebone, and monitor how many eggs she is laying and when, if she's egg bound she will need to be seen by an avian vet to help her pass the egg.

    Provide her will lots of good food like veggies ( plenty of dark leafy greens) some sprouted seeds, pellets if she eats them etc.

    She eats all that stuff daily but ignores the cuttlebone. She has a regular avian vet, we are giving her till Friday afternoon to lay, if she hasn't then the vet is going to see her before closing. Vet doesn't want her to wait till Monday. Fingers crossed for today. I have moved her cage to my room where it's nice and quiet for her.

    Sometimes it helps to take a hen into the steamy bathroom for lots of moisture as this may ease passage of eggs.
